I missed yesterdays country design, i have just a little bit too much on my plate right now but can't complain. Its all very positive and exiting. New challenges, and an incredible opportunity that i just can't wait to tell everyone about. So next stop around the world is in the continent of Africa it's a country about the size of Texas called 'Zambia' I dedicate this design to a very special person in my life. Hope you like.

On the thumb i did sort of  a landscape of sun set with the river flowing by, Index i did cheetah, zebra, and giraffe print to symbolize Zambia's wildlife, Middle i tried to do the Victoria falls which are in Livingstone Zambia, Ring finger i did a patter of a hand woven basket, and on the pinky i did Zambia's national flag.

Used: OPI 'Jade is the New Black', 'Cabana Bana', 'Flint Island Flicker', 'Cool in the Pool', 'Moon over Mumbai', 'How to Jamaica Mil', 'Symphony in Gold', 'Daffy Dill', 'Rumba Romance', 'Run with it', Orly 'Haute Red', 'Flagstone Rush', Essie 'Sweet Talker', 'Mink Muffs', 'Little Brown Dress', Sally Hansen 'Blue-away', 'Lightening', and Milani 'Bijou Bronze'

Wish i would of gotten more information from someone who's actually been to Zambia but didn't have time to collect information on it. But while i was searching what important aspects to draw from Zambia i found a very interesting article check it out.

Countries and their Culture on

So like i said Zambia is about the Size of Texas. Its completely rich in wild life, and gorgeous landscapes.
 I found this too be so interesting of where the countries name is derived from.

Zambia derives its name from the Zambezi River. The river runs across the western and southern border and then forms Victoria Falls and flows into Lake Kariba and on to the Indian Ocean. 

 the flag of Zambia

The background of the national flag is green, symbolic of the country's natural beauty, with three vertical stripes in the lower right corner. The three stripes are: red, symbolic of the country's struggle for freedom; black, representing the racial makeup of the majority population; and orange, symbolic of the country's copper riches and other mineral wealth. A copper-colored eagle in the upper right corner symbolizes the       
           country's ability to rise above its problems.

Zambia is noted for its rich wildlife and landscapes, using those resources to promote tourism with the slogan, "the Real Africa." The most notable landmark is Victoria Falls, known locally as Mosi-oa-Tunya, which means "the smoke that thunders." It is one of the seven natural wonders of the world and even though it is shared with Zimbabwe, it is a source of great pride for Zambians. 

Hand Woven baskets

Check out those beautiful patterns (I want one) 

I also read that Zambians are know for also doing one of the best hand Woven basket design's like the one above with cool patterns.

 How magnificent is this too actually see wild life before your eyes.
 Well you can if you go to Zambia because it has a lot of safari's

This is the landscape i tried to do on my thumb hopefully i succeeded at catching such beauty.

Well thank you for joining me on another journey stay tune for the next country.
